Airport tree plan advances
News-Leader :

City commissioners gave the go-
ahead Monday for a preliminary tree
management plan for the Fernandina
Beach Municipal Airport. Residents
who attended the workshop. howev-
er, expris.sc-d doubts aboul the city's
plan for the airport itself, as well as its
potential program for airport trees.
City officials last year introduced
a plan to cut several thousand trees
at the airport due to safety, issues,
but residents in surrounding neigh-
borhoods raised objections and the
plan was dropped. In March.:htcity
permitted the felling ,ofone- pine tree
plus the priming of up to 25 oak trees
in an effoi t to improve the safety of
four runway approaches.
'According to a report by Andrew
Holesko of consulting' firm Passero
Associates, several species of trees
within rectangular areas around the
runways will eventually need to be
cut or trimmed, although the run-
way approaches are still safe for the
time being, he said.
The removal or trimming of trees
is a.regular activity at all Florida air-
poits, he said, in order to comply
with runway regulations and to
secure federal and .state grants. Once
a tree management plan is submitted
to the federal Department of
Transportation, Holesko said, grants
will become available to implement it
Holesko noted in the report the
plan would not include the trimming
or removal of trees on private prop-

erty, and there are no plans for run-
way extensions to accommodate air-
craft larger than the ones operating
at the airport today. Trees might be
cut along public rights of way.
"(TrEt growth) is something
that's recurring," Holesko said. "If
you don't deal with it (on a regular
basis), it will hit you every 20 years."
Holesko also noted some cities have
regular airport maintenance staff that
cut down small foliage on a regular
schedule, before it becomes a prob-
Holesko's report was partially
based on a study of airport trees by
Early McCall, a certified arborist.
According to McCall's June 15
report, 71 percent of trees growing
on airport property are pines, while
26 percent are oak. Other tree
species make up the remaining 3 per-
The five areas identified as having
the most potentially hazardous trees
were the Runway 22 approach, the
Runway 27 approach, the Runway 31
approach, the south transition for
Runway 27 and the transition
between Runway 22 and 27.
McCall. said the Runway 22

approach was especially problemat-
ic because of the number of tall pines
in the area. One stand of trees in the
area has pines 40-45 years old and in
The range of 75-110 feet tall. He also
noted tht stand has an estimated .
2012 harvest value of $58',000.'
" "The stand is mature 'and no
lorgi l",i c'id, ..,_i,-nrom' l growth
value," he wrote. "The site is very,
thick with pine straw.(fuel load) and
a fire in that very mature stand ...
could potentially be devastating to
the residents of the Simmons Cove
subdivision." The runway approach,
he said, also encroaches on the
Fernandina Beach Golf Club.'
"It appeal s the FAA will require
most of the tall pines to be removed,"
he wrote of the area north of Runway
27. "However, there were some, nice
live oaks in the understory that
should be left as will be under the
FAA height.restrictions.".
Sam Lane, a member of the
Airport Advisory Commission, said,
one option would be for the city to
eliminate the instrument approach

City aims to jump-start CRA

City commissioners conceded Tuesday that their
Community Redevelopment Area. in downtown
Fernandina Beach needs more attention, and that an advi-
sory board should be formed to address it.
The CRA was created in 2005.as a way to spur devel-
opment in the downtown waterfront area and a few
blocks upland. Given the economic recession, it has not
done so. .
A CRA is a special taxing district set up by munici-
palities with the goal of eliminating blight and enhanc-
ing the tax base to bring more revenues for improvement
to the area. The city's CRA comprises about 40 acres and'
56 properties near the city's riverfront, with public/pri-
vate ownership about evenly divided.
After a CRA is created, property values within the area
are "frozen" from the first year on, and any incremental
tax revenues from an increase in -property values go
into a CRA trust fund. The trust fund is then used to
finance public infrastructure improvements, which
enhance property values and spur private development.
Fernandina Beach's CRA has brought in virtually
no funds, however, because the financial crash that

began in 2007 stopped developers from investing in the
City Planner Kelly Gibson presented commission-'
ers at Tuesday's meeting with follow-up to some ques-
tions they had asked at an earlier workshop regarding
the CRA.
Questions included whether the base year of the
CRA should be re-set, whether the CRA should, be
expanded, whether the city commission should contin-
'ue to be the CRA agency and how often the .agency
should meet.
Commissioner Charles Corbett asked what the pur-
pose of the CRA is, since very few properties, if any, have
benefited from it. Vice Mayor Jeffrey Bunch, also asked
why the CRA should be continued.
"When it was started in 2005, there was a boom
going on," Bunch said. "What could be the harm in
doing away with the CRA. until times get better? It's not
collecting any money. Maybe we should wait a year or
two years down the road."
But Commissioner Tim Poynter said the CRA isn't
really costing the city anything, and still has potential to
spur development downtown.

DUI? 'it's


The wornan driving on Amelia

about the behavior of the driver in front

he almost hit a car going head-on," the

Details surrounding the commis-

investigated for DUI.
"Are you kidding?" Johnson
said. "You know what's going
on. This is, like, all political. I'm
not even playing."
"No ma'am, it's not," Arline
"OK," Johnson said.
"It has nothing to do about
being political," Arline said. "I
can smell the odor of an alco-
holic beverage emitting from
your breath."
"Really?" the commissioner
"I sure do," Arline replied.
Johnson tries to call an'attor-
ney on her cell phone but Arline
takes it away from her until she
is booked. She repeatedly asks,

him to give it back. "I want my'
phone," she said petulantly.
Johnson told the deputy she
is followed, and pulled over
"every other night," culminating
in the following exchange:
"I've had nothing but crap,"
she said. "I've been pulled over,
like, you don't even know."
"I don't know. This is my first
time dealing with you," Arline
The commissioner told the
deputy that her arrest, like a
previously reported drunken
incident at The Ritz-Carlton,
Amelia Island on March 9, was
part of a plot to discredit her.
She is "absolutely" being.
framed and Seagraves was
behind it, Johnson tells him.
Once in handcuffs, Johnson
shifted gears and asked if she

could take the field sobriety
exercises but Arline told her it
was too late, she had forfeited
her chance.
"I'll take a sobriety test," she
said, crying. "I thought I could
say no and I'd be OK I'm telling
you right now I'll take a sobriety
test. I don't care. I don't want to
go to jail. I have three kids. I'll
take a sobriety test right now."
Seated in the back of a police
car, Johnson appeared to find
comfort in the presence on the
lawn of her small white dog,
which she spoke to at length
while tapping on a window;
"Hey baby, hey baby, hey baby."
"I'm hot," she's heard telling
nobody in particular at one
point At another she said, "It's
all about politics. People can't
handle me out here. They want

to handle me, but they can't han-
dle this." -
Still apparently alone in the
back of the car, Johnson said,
"Tommy Seagraves is a 12-year-
old with a badge, and I'm in the
back of a cop car and I don't
know what's going on. I just
want to pee, I want to get my
hands out of the handcuffs and
I want an attorney because this
was bound to happen eventual-
On the drive to the jail,
Johnson told deputies they were
unwitting pawns'in the sheriffs
game. "Whether you realize it
or not, you are a pawn in a game
of a 12-year-old with a badge....
You are a pawn whether you
realize it or not, and if you feel
gdod about this, you. can just
sleep on your pillow every

It is not until she arrives at
the Nassau County Jail that
Johnson realizes she is .being'
videotaped and recorded.
Once at the jail, the com-
missioner declined to take a
breath test, according to the
police report.
Florida's implied consent
laws state that the privilege of a
driver's license requires that
motorists agree to submit to
breath tests in the event of a
drunk driving arrest. Refusal to
take the test means the driver's
license is suspended for one
Johnson,'like other drivers,
would be entitled to a formal
hearing by the state-Depart-
ment of Highway Safety and
Motor Vehicles to review her

arrest and determine whether
she may keep her license or
lose it.
. Neither Johnson nor the
,other woman involved in the
flap. at The Ritz-Carlton was
charged with a crime, despite
the commissioner's allegation
that she was punched in the
face by the other .woman and
the sheriff's accusation that
Johnson tried to have the mat-
ter kept from the media. Part of
that spat, when Johnson
obstructs traffic in the resort's
driveway, was recorded by hotel
Johnson withdrew from her
reelection bid after, that inci-.
dent. .Hey term expires in
December unless she resigns
or is removed from office by
Gov. Rick Scott.

slope and save a number o0

he said, would be to close the
runway and allow the trees tc
Holesko encouraged com-
missioners to.i "look at the
long term" and determine what
type of airport facility the city
should have. "The vision is, you
take care of the trees, you don't
get rid of the runway," he sAid.
."You can make that proposal
'(to eliminate a runway). but youu
won't be following your own
Plann" .. ::
Vice Mayor Jeffrey Bunch
said he was not in favor of shori-
ening any runways, butthat ihe
was concerned about the noise
buffer that would disappear if
many trees were cut down.
"(We should) plant trees that
are well below grade to keep
the noise out of the neighbor-
hood," Bunch said "I hate to
say it, but part of our obligalio n

to the federal government is'to
maintain (the airport) at the
same time they're giving us
. money."
r Resident Mike Meadows
f also noted the trees are both
, wind and noise barriers.

would not be available all at
ohtce, but that "the FDOT does
not like to keep grants open for
years and years."
t '"He also noted the FDOT
would soon %want to know what

"I would lie if I said I guar-

Good things come in small
packages is a phrase that has
been around as long as I can
remember. Nothing exhibits
this more than an engagement
ring accepted by a blushing
bride to be. In that smaller cars
are here and will be coming to
our future, it seems like a good,
time to look at classic small-car
examples. This is an unscien-
tific list that I crafted lying in
bed trying to, go to sleep. I got
up, went to the kitchen and jot-
ted these down. Ten people
would have 10 different lists,
but these are good ones. Most
have been staples for decades
and continue to be desired.
In no particular order, here
we go:
1) Volkswagen Beetle. I had
a '67, with a functioning 8-track
and loved driving it. This icon-
ic model has been around since
the '60's in our country. Their
$1,995 offer made for an effec-
tive print ad. Newly redesigned
and still popular, this is a good
place to start '
2) Corvette. Introduced in
1953, this car was ahead of its
time for; decades. Cathy Pear-
;oil. a myii high school in Wil-
mrington, N.C., had a new one
and was a rock star. They ele-
Sated a lot f people's status and
hupetully still put a spring in
the step of the primarily north of.
50 buyers They are a valued
collector car and an enduring
.3 CivicCorolla These two
small cars deservt credit for
decades of staying power and
big sales volumes. They set the
bar for small cars and I believe
are the best values at their
respective franchises. Compet-
ition from home and abroad will
challenge their prominence,. but
they are still small car leaders..,
4) Mini Coopei. These little
cars are hot right now. New
models are being introduced-
and the limited dealer body is
slowly growing. I notice cars
and they seem to be multiplying
like rabbits. Good resale and a
BMW tie-in help make this a
popular. small, sporty choice for
this millennium "
5) Ferrari. Who was cooler
,than Magnum PI in his red
Ferrari? When you pull up to
valet parking at a Ruth's Chris

example for
Rick Keffer their similari-
ties. Mus-
tangs were introduced in '64
and Camaros came out in '67.
Two noteworthy success sto-
ries that endure today. There
were so many famous versions
of these cars, like Boss
Mustangs and Z28 Camaros,
that I can't begin to do them
justice. They both were instant
7) Mercedes SL I sold these
new from '78 to '88 and was
always intrigued with the cus-
tomers who had the pocketbook
to invest in these two-seater lux-
ury/sport models. They were

8) Porsche 911 Anuther
German car that is classic
enough to remain iis body style
for decades This ,car is not
macho or holty-toiiy it is sin-
ply "cool.'" t)wners often wear

neat hats, maybe a few even
wear driving gloves as this is
essentially a race car. It is a dif-
ferent animal that buys these,
but not an extinct breed.
This list of 10 is enough to
evoke the small-car mystique.
I am sure thbre are obvious
omissions, but I did this in the
middle of the night and am
sticking to my first thoughts.
Growing up in a car family,
there were other models that I
admired many not small cars.
Among them are a BMW 2002,
an MGB-GT, a Triumph TR6,
Austin Healy 3000, GTOs, 442s,
SS396 Chevelles,bright-colored
Mopars and a ton more.
Cars and emotion can and
do still go together. There are
admittedly ample vanilla offer-
ings (Iwon't name names), and
vanilla is a very popular flavor.
But if you are looking for fun it
is there to be found at your local
new and used. car dealers.
A note. to college 2012 grad-
uates don't overlook the car
business. Selling cars is a wor-
thy profession for confident,
good communicating young
people. From national.chains
like AutoNation or Penske to
individual dealerships, the cor-
porate ladder has far fewer
rungs. Everyone needs a car -,
don't overlook the obvious.
Have a good week.

Bottles on the porch

M y husband and I, like many before
us, were drawn to this island; he
many years ago when as a child
his family vacationed on this
island, camping out at Fort Clinch or renting a
cinderblock house somewhere on the semi-
isolated street that is now Fletcher. His family
began a long tradition of coming here, begin-
ning in 1950 when my husband's parents cele-
brated their honeymoon here, cooking hot
dogs over a campfire on the beach and saving
their money for their one night out at the only
restaurant around, one called Slider's Inn.
Sixty-plus years ago, campfires, fishing holes
and hospitable surroundings beckoned my
husband's family and time after time they
came here. My husband also had the' notion to
celebrate his first honeymoon here, one of the
reasons that it took many years of nudging for
me to agree to set foot on the island.
After enough nudgings, I begrudgingly
agreed to come here for a vacation. We came
with two of our teenage daughters in tow for a
three-day weekend and since that time have
vacationed here countless times, spent an idyl-
lic summer here last year and purchased a lot
in the historic district with the intent to build a
home that we hope evokes memories of the.
architectural style from the 1930s. While wait-

ing for its completion we are ensconced in a
rental house that I fondly call The Crooked
Little House, aptly named for the way the
house has settled itself into the ground over
the course of its 100-plus years.
After.relocating down here, I was quick to -
learn that vacationing here is the easy part,
making a home is harder. We have been resi-
dents now for four months and have on occa-
sion left to go "on vacation" elsewhere, visit
family and friends back in the home state of
Georgia and other jaunts that lead us across
Shave Bridge.
On a recent weekend, after a period of five'
days away, we crossed back across the bridge
and once again I didn't hear the elusive cAll of
home that I so longed -to hear. That changed,
however, when we pulled into the driveway.
Greeting me on my front steps were three
empty glass bottles; one cobalt blue, one
green and one aqua. Their colors are as vivid
as the waters surrounding the Abacos islands
in the Bahamas from which we had just visit-
ed. They sat there quietly on the porch. There
was ho note, but to me they spoke loudly and
Someone had noticed the bottle tree in our
front yard and had placed these beautiful bot-
tles on our porch, assuming, rightly so, that I

would give them a good home. The bottles are
now proudly displayed on the front tree and
when I glance at them, I will recall that ele-
ment of surprise, not just in the gift, but.in the
fact that someone, in a silent way, welcomed
us home. To my donor, you touched a chord,
leaving behind a part of yourself that now con-
nects me to this island. Your small act is not
random in my mind, but a wink that this is the
right decision and were home.
In the Caribbean waters there is the
mighty, beautiful queen conch. It starts out as
a very small animal, sp small that many conch,
can fit into the palm of one's hand. Over time,
the shell strengthens and grows and becomes
a stable, strong home to this sea creature.
Kind acts are building my home on
Fernandina, from porch parties to derby par-
ties, from howling at the moon to skimming
the river in a fishing boat with neighbors, to
"Turtle Runs" with a favorite new friend and
all in between. Fernandinans have opened
their home to us. And they have left bottles on
my porch. They are building myihome for me
and making this not so easy transition, easier.
I offer my thanks to the person that left the
bottles on my porch and to the folks of
Fernandina fot welcoming us in to your fold.
Little by little, act by act, home is calling.

Suffering of people on the street

I was an ugly American walk-
ing alone in a crowded': "
Middle Eastern city. but I was
not afraid. My main concern
that night was finding a phone
booth that would take my prepaid'
phone card. I never found one.
During, my search, I bumped
into a tour guide who was leading
a group of Japanese from our
hotel to tourist
Attractions in the
city. I tagged
along for a while.

the guide
described places,
explaining in
English while
FROM the Japanese

OFFICE everyone, includ-
...- .When we'
stopped in front'
PhilHudgins ofa bathhouse, a
hairy-chested, bearded Arab
wearing nothing but a towel
around hi waIis[ stepped iran tlhe
doorway and posed, sucking in
'his stomach and smiling proudly.
Orie of the Japanese women
smiled back and said sweetly,
"Very nice."
The year was 2006. The place
was Hama, Syria.
Oh,nwhat a difference six years
can make.
Today, the central Hama
province is still reeling from a
massacre by Syrian government
forces of at least 78 people, includ-
ing-many women and children.
They had been shot, garroted,
stabbed and in some cases
burned' alive. Government troops
fired upon unarmed United
Nations monitors seeking to
investigate the massacre.
Thousands have been killed
under the leadership of Syrian


.President Bashar Assad.
So, need I say that revisiting
Syria is not on my bucket list?
But, back in 2006, after touring
six countries, I decided that the
people of Syria were the friend-'
*Everywhere we went there,
people would throw up their
hands and yell, "Welcome, wel-
come." Early in the trip, I was
walking through a Damascu's
souq an open-air market:
where vendors sell a little of
everything when a Syrian man
stopped me and asked why. I was
in his country.
"I'm touring your country," I
said. (Actually, I was one of about
40 Americans 30 seminarystu-

.dents and 10 lay people taking
part in the Middle East Travel
Seminar. The centerpiece of the,
* program is a three-week trip
through Syria, Lebanon,
"Jordan, Sinai in Egypt, Israel and'
"Are you going to Hama?" the
man asked. "Yes," I said,."I
believe we are."
He told me his name was
Hamas, and he lived in Hama.
He wrote his phone number on
my notepad and said, "When
you.get to Hama, call me if I
can help you in any way." I had
one of his friends photograph us
together, and we went our sepa-
rate ways.
So what's going on here? Syria

certainly is not a friend of the
United States, but almost every-
body I met there couldn't have
been nicer.
The short, simplistic answer is
this: The whole mess is caused by -
evil people in government, not
average people on the street. The
people on the street not just in
Syria, but in other countries -
often are the victims.
Will peace ever come to the
Middle East? God only knows: All
I know is my soul aches for the
people on the street.

Health Department director,
"Nassau CHD, with strong

Beware of limits when altering hydrangeas

I want to be sure my pink
.hydrangeas stay pink and my blue
hydrangeas stay blue. I have been
adding lime to make the flowers pink
and aluminum sulfate to turn them blue.
What I want to know is what time of
year is best to amend the soil? CA
A.Good question, I was not sure
.-myself so I did a little investigation.
Generally, most gardeners suggest
adding the amendments just before the
leaves or flower buds begin to develop or
flush out possibly late February or
early March.
Altering the color of the flowers only
applies to the mop head hydrangeas,
which are often called big lehfed. We will
not be able to change the color of the
oakleaf hydrangeas only those species
- H. macrophylla or serrata. I would also
caution you about using too much of.any
amendment because over-applying can
create problems. Lime can take up to
three months to increase the soil pH, so
just because you do not see an immedi-
ate reaction does not mean it is not work-
ing. Be patient.
It is possible to cause other nutrient
deficiencies, such as iron chlorosis,
when adding lime to ornamental beds
and lawns. Remember, adding lime rais-
es or increases the pH, making the soil
more alkaline. If you wish the flowers to
be blue, then add aluminum sulfate.
Lastly, there "are some genetic bound-
aries which even adding amendments
cannot alter.,
, I was looking at a Bottle palm in
.one of the local garden centers and

I was thinking of buying
it. However, when I went
to your website I notice
you do not have one in
the demonstration gar-
den. Can we grow this
S palm here? DN
A Bottle palm,
1X .Hyophorbe lageni-
caulis, is a very attractive
GADIEN palm with an interesting
TALK bottle-shaped stem. It
loves hot weather as it
was originally found on
Becky ordi the Mascarene Islands,,
located in the Indian
Ocean. Our biggest concern about grow-
ing it here would be potential exposure
to cold temperatures.
It grows well in south Florida and it
might survive in protected areas here.
such as an enclosed patio as long as it
gets plenty-of sunlight arid the tempera-
tures are not too severe. If temperatures
drop too low, it might need protection
and even require being brought inside.
Bottle palm can reach heights of up to
20 feet with a 12 foot spread on the
fronds. This might limit your ability to
move it! The palm's fruits were fed to
hogs, which is where the root of the
genus Hyophorbe originates. It is a com-
bination of two Greek'words: hyo, mean-
ing pig or hog, and phorb, meaning feed
or fodder. The species name, lageni-'
caulis, is a combination of two Greek
words: lagen, meaning "a flask," and
caulis means "a stem," So, stem-flasked
refers to' the bottle-shaped trunk of this

palm. See, sometimes science really does
make sense! For information check out
the University of Florida publication:
. Q What is wrong with my
.vinca? MK
A .Thanks for bringing in your sample
1..to the office; you were the second .
person I saw with an issue on vinca today
at our plant clinic. I suspect both of you
have the same problem phytophthora
root rot.
Vinca love well-drained soil, so I sus-
pected too much water was the origin of
the problem. In one case, it was over-irri-
gation but in your case, the problem was
a.combination of too much water and too
much rain. Not much can be done about
the weather except to be sure,the soil
.can drajn the water quickly. It is,also rec-
ommended rotating the types of annuals
planted and stay away from planting the
same species.year after year.
Select healthy plants before placing
them into the flowerbeds. Sometimes *
getting a "deal" on plants at the garden
centers is not a.deal at all especially if:
the plants show signs of disease and/or
insects. We would suggest using a slow
release fertilizer in the spring and sum-
mer but do not over do it.
Over-fertilization can make the plant
more inviting to insects and disease.
When watering, choose early morning
between 6-1Q a.m. Twide a week may be
too excessive. .

Boaters warned to be safe

on the water July 4 holiday

The 4th of July celebration
is right around the corner
and is a popular time for
boaters to get out and enjoy
being on.the water with fami-
ly and friends. But, with
approximately 500 people
drowning each year from
recreational boating acci-
dents, it is imperative to
always boat responsibly,
including wearing a life jack-
et, being alert and aware
while on the water and obey-
ing navigation rules.
The National Safe Boating
Council is encouraging all
boaters to take the "Safe
Summer Pledge" this July 4.
The pledge allows boaters to
share with their family and

friends their dedication to
boat safety and wearing a life
jacket each and every time
they are on the water. The
pledge can be signed and
shared via your social net-
works by visiting.
com/camp pledge.htm..
The NSBC is looking for
safe summer boating stories
through Labor Day weekend.
Whether silly or serious,
boaters can submit personal
stories of safety and be
entered in for a chance to win
a prize package. Stories may
be submitted by email at out-'
org or by visiting www.safe

Academy finds new life as Arts Alive Nassau!'

For the Nerbs-Leader

The Amelia Arts Academy has been reborn
and is very much alive. The Board of
Directors of the organization has formally
changed the name to Arts Alive Nassau! And
the name demonstrates all the new life in this
organization built on a 20-year foundation of
providing arts in this community. '
The new name came out of a community
strategic brainstorming session that was held
on April 23 A group of more than 20 commu-
nity members gathered to brainstorm ways
that the organization might better serve com-
munity art needs A new name was suggested

and the idea was received enthusiastically by
the group. For the rest of that week, the group
engaged in a lively email "conversation"
regarding new names and reasons for them.
By the end of thie week there was consensus
that Arts Alive Nassau was the name. The
Board of Directors voted the name in unani-
mously at their May meeting and just received
notification that the state of Florida has
approved the name change.
This name was selected because it shows
the organization is providing art programs and
opportunities throughout Nassau'County and
is very much alive and vibrant!
Arts Alive Nassau moved its administrative.

Nassau into its new vision of
providing arts to those who
